jazz arena. Murray Low is a keyboard wizard with dazzling Latin-jazz
technique and imaginative improvisational skills. Aaron Germain is an
inventive and sophisticated acoustic and electric bassist. Along with

trio's funky Latin jazz repertoire, blending in elements of classical
music, mixes complex orchestration with freewheeling improvisation. The
band brings a similar approach to playing their own arrangements of
jazz standards, each played with a new twist.
All of the
trio's music has a distinctly acoustic sensibility, despite the members
playing both acoustic and electric acoustic instruments. The group's
hallmark is sensitivity and spontaneity among the players, making each
performance a spontaneous group exploration. The band's energy level
is always high, even when they are cooking at a volume no louder than a

the group, it’s obvious that they have fun playing together and admire
each other’s musical instincts.
